Christmas time for me has been preceeded by some quite interesting events over the past few years.
In 2002, everything was normal.
Back in 2003, I was back in high-school. Grade 12 in-fact, and it was just before christmas that me and a friend were suspended from school.
Last year, 2004, I was working a low-end job…Best Buy…during this time. It was kinda crummy to work in retail…especially around the christmas season!
This year, 2005, I will be working in an office with a salary pay. Nice, eh?
As you can see, things have gotten better for me as the years go on! Being suspended that first year was something different for a change for me. I got to experience something other than ‘just another generic christmas season’. When I look back now, it seemed to have been a better Christmas than in previous years because it was my first plunge out of normality. Being completely normal is boring. People are starting to realize that it is one of the most horrible things.
When I got into retail, I had no real idea how bad it really was going to be! But somehow I guess I would call it better than being just suspended… Actually, many people would rather the suspension than work retail during the Christmas season! haha! But I consider it a step-up in the world. The opening of my life into the job world.
This year, things have improved quite a bit further. I’m now working that pretty good job…although boring at times…many times… It’s a nice set-up.
So the way I see it is that next year should hold a sweet job with less boringness to it! I’m working on that plan right now with a few friends, and we’re going to make it happen!
